It looks awesome from the video..... but then....

do what you want, still can't change sun direction from behind....

Then there's selection area, you will see how terrible the blend is when you view the image larger.

Wedding photographers will buy this up for dummy clients. I doubt hardcore landscape guys will spoil their hard works with fake junk. Should have name it Dummy4WeddingPro.

Daniel L: Next time try shooting wide open for a change, you are not inches away from the subject. Don't be shy.

Isn't the point is to see accurate the camera focusing is? why shooting everything at F5.6 on a 70-200mm? Forgot how to use aperture?

@redfox88 Since when wide open is gear head fetish? Is paying top dollar for fast lens with pleasing bokeh nothing but gear head fetish?

May be you don't get it. The author wants to test AF performance, as the article suggested but stepping down on most of the shots, that's meaningless for AF test since the subjects are so far behind.

To the merit of good photos. The background is rather busy on this track, Any decent shooters but soccer mom would shoot wide open as much as he could to blur the track out.

mosc: It sells so well and I never understood it. There's a 2x adapter for your 70-200 f2.8 that gives 400 f5.6 same as this (140mm f5.6 is only marginally less wide/slower for situations without time to remove the 2x). Who owns the 100-400 and NOT a 70-200?

Me too. Why any one wants to buy the overpriced 500mm, 600mm or 800mm superteles? Just stack convertors right? Cheaper, lighter and smarter too.

Boss of Sony: I remember a photography forum thread complaining about people interacting with nature and spoiling the photographers' ability to get a good shot. About 20 obsessed photographers were lining up to photograph a beautiful river somewhere in the U.S. Some tourist jumped in and had a swim, and all the photographers were annoyed because it ruined their shot. To me this shows the insane obsessiveness and hypocrisy of some nature photographers. I would have ignored the photographers and had a swim too (except not in the U.S, because every second person in the U.S. has a gun).

Not every person in the US has a gun, but you got the fear factor right. In USA, guns is too easy and cheap to get. You could get shot over parking space, road rage or you kids never came back from school because his buddy is having a bad hair dad and out second amendment to use.

No, That's not a freedom, it's a burden.

SergioMO: ok, now, is getting closer to the competition. lol

Yap, any closer, they all will be out of business. It seems that's what Apple's competitors can do now years in and years out is REV UP the spec. Doesn't matter what Apple packs in new iPhone, it will sells like hot cakes. Some people buy in The platform and user experiences, others buy Spec Sheet.

BigShooter: Wow, how good of them to warranty their faulty product.

Are they supposed to be praised for this?

Just make it right in the first place, quit wasting our time and resources.

Try Androids junk, anything wrong, buy the next model.

Yea. That's what Nazi lovers said about Hitler.

I carry my gears in home depot extra durable trash bag. I know, it's bad for the environment but good for raining days. It only cost $3.99 for a bag of 20. Come in clear or black.

On article Canon EOS 5DS R added to studio test scene comparison (518 comments in total)

Detail is impressive but takes a toll on high iso noise. Look worst than 7D Mark II. So i guess that's the reason why they limited high iso to 128k, the next stop must be unusable.

Cameraman777: I am not surprised by snake oil salespersons who will never stop devicing new scams. Fangs light mod works like a charm.

I am surprised by the relatively large number of people who are fooled by those snake oil salespersons who have no demonstrated credibility in photography.

Snake oil in milk bottle for $50. That's a good deal!
